Since March 2020 we have been unable to sing together in the usual way in residential homes and community groups. There have been no face-to-face groups since that time; thus ensuring everyone’s safety and adhering to government guidelines about social distancing.
For a singing leader such as myself this has provided quite a challenge! I have since provided developed two approaches to providing singing sessions: 1) pre-recorded singing sessions over the YouTube video-sharing platform; and 2) live remote sessions using the Zoom video conferencing platform.
Pre-recorded sessions via YouTube
As a first response I began compiling a selection of pre-recorded Singing for Wellbeing video sessions. These can be accessed at any time of the day or night via my YouTube channel. Click on one of the links below to try a session you are interested in.
